    Did anyone who went last night notice the crazy amount of photo strobes during the game? I remember them having a similar set up for the tourney game at the Pit, but I didnt think the flashes were nearly as frequent as last night. Anybody have any insight on whether or not to expect that for the rest of the year? I haven't noticed it at any other game in the past and it took me totally out of the experience. I started counting them it was bothering me so bad. There were 9 flashes in the first 39 seconds of the first half. Might have to bring sunglasses to the next game. Or drop my season tickets.

    Not really. But they were damn annoying. Just wanted to see if anybody else who went to the game had noticed them...

    Since we are griping here, I was wondering about the whirly sign in the student section. Are those legal in college? I know they banned them in the NBA about 14 years ago after the Pacers fans were using them.

    Eh, my only gripe is with the ribbon boards. I'd like to see them put some occasional stats and scores from around the country in there. Not ads 100% of the time.. I've pretty much learned to fully tune them out, which can't be what the advertisers were after.

    If a bear farts in the woods will the chicken cross the road?

    Depends on the strength of the fart and direction of the wind.

    Wake Forest uses literally dozens of them, or they did up until 2010 before Bzdelik destroyed their program.

    Thanks, as long as it's cool I'm good with it. I didn't want the NCAA to have a reason to punish us.

    They’re legal. Noise makers like air horns are not legal. There is a fine art of Free Throw distraction.

    I know. Maybe Goose shouldn't be allowed to sit in our section any more. It's obviously bad luck. I blame Goose for last night.

    Back at 'real' gripes - anyone else catch the fact that the possession arrows were out of sync between the scoreboards and the scorers table for quite a while before the Texas So. bench noticed?



    On the other hand anyone notice Booker get sucked into one round of claps on the "Take his whistle" chant near the end of the game? I love that these guys are young, and still appreciate the crowds that are showing up.

    I saw him clapping on TV but had no idea that's what he was doing. Probably not a good idea to show up the refs like that.

    Mayor and Ski shoot 7 of 27 from the floor or 26% and the Buffs still win. That is impressive.

    They survived the ultimate trap game with a young team probably looking ahead to the next 3 games and playing against a guy that went unconscious against them.

    They're the NCAA. They don't need no stinkin' reason.

    Just took a quick look, and it appears that our opponents 2nd half free throw shooting percentage in our home games has been 62.96%.
    10 second half misses by opponents in the 3 home games so far.

    The deal where the students pound on the seats and then throw up their hands right as the guy is shooting seems to be very effective. I understand you don't want to use it the whole time, but that one really worked against AF.

    We really need someone to dance in a gold banana sling. Nothing will ever be more distracting to a foul shooter.
